Dynamic people sought to help us take the traditional Handyperson role to new and exciting levels 

 

Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.

 

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

 

The Post

 

This is a newly created role based upon that of a Handyperson but taking a more holistic approach. Providing a genuinely customer focussed, rapid response service enabling elderly, vulnerable and disabled residents to help them remain safe, independent and comfortable in their own home. In addition to performing general maintenance tasks we will provide training for the ideal candidates to work confidently and autonomously in;

• Carrying out trusted assessments and home safety checks.
• Providing an advocacy service, proactively linking customers with other agencies/services or networks.
• Providing a hospital liaison function, working closely with health professionals to facilitate hospital discharges and help prevent readmission.
• Accessing other grant services where appropriate to achieve the best results. 
  

The Person

 

This would ideally suit candidates with a background in delivering building related services, who are physically fit, proactive in engaging with customers and commissioners, enjoy helping people and have creative and innovative problem solving abilities. You will also need to have a clean driving licence and be successful in the completion of training in relation to being a trusted assessor and other key aspects of the role.

 

Closing Date: 22 July 2018 (23:00)
